I am a cultural geographer with a particular interest in technology, based at the University of Exeter. My research principally concerns the design and use of digital technologies and technical practices that are significant to how we experience space and place.
My research draws upon and advances urban and cultural geography and STS to understand the increasing importance of digital technologies in our lives. My goal is to pursue critical geographies of technology, charting the complex and sometimes surprising agency of technologies that mediate experience. This work informs how I contribute to the teaching of geography at Exeter, in particular modules concerning Cultural and Political Geographies and dissertations on a range of topics. As a member of a growing movement for critical technology studies, both in geography and more broadly in the social sciences, I conduct research and organise events that situate and study the design and development of networked digital technologies. This website is a means for sharing my work. Read my latest blog post at /blog.
More broadly, I contribute to advancing the understanding and public communication of human geography as a committee member of the History and Philosophy of Geography and Social and Cultural Geography Research Groups of the Royal Geographical Society (with the IBG).
